GILES FARNABY  

(1563 - 1640)

A Londoner and a joiner by trade, Giles Farnaby occupies an ambivalent position in the English music of his period, lacking something of the consistency of his more distinguished contemporaries and apparently, in the long run, lacking material success either as a musician or as a joiner or virginal-maker.

Keyboard Music

Chief among Farnaby’s surviving compositions are eleven Fantasias for virginals. There is a smaller number of keyboard pieces still extent by Farnaby’s son Richard.
